The 51 coolest neighbourhoods in the world

The 51 coolest neighbourhoods in the world

It’s been a rough few years for the world at large – but in many ways, a fantastic one for neighbourhoods. Although we haven’t been able to travel the world as freely as we once did, billions of us have been spending more time than ever closer to home. And in many of the world’s greatest cities, the result has been a full-blown neighbourhood renaissance. It’s true that much-loved local shops, restaurants, bars and creative spaces have, sadly, shuttered for good. But there’s also been a whole wave of new businesses opening, driven not just by increased footfall outside city centres, but also by the ‘great resignation’. City-dwellers have quit their corporate jobs to finally follow their joy, whether it’s opening that corner café or much-needed local LGBTQ+ bar, or just spending more time living slowly and spending more time (and money) in their local area. At the same time, local officials the world over have been re-establishing their neighbourhoods as places for people. In some cases that’s meant overhauling street space: less driving, more walking, cycling and hanging out. In others, it’s meant tackling problems like overtourism, inequality and air pollution. All of this has led to districts looking very different than they did just a few years ago – and becoming better places for locals and travellers alike.

The 10 best international travel hacks for Americans

The 10 best international travel hacks for Americans

Globetrotting across the planet full-time for seven years has taught me a few tricks. And after visiting all seven continents and over 70 countries, I'd like to share my best international travel short-cuts that will help you prepare for your next overseas trip. Rest assured, these are all ethical, unlike the atrocious idea that encourages able-bodied travelers to request a wheelchair in order to expedite going through airport security. It’s exploitative and fraudulent to lie about having a disability. Don’t do that. Instead, use these travel hacks to help you travel with ease; from traveling with a debit card that reimburses you for ATM fees, or earning reward miles from booking ride shares and accommodations, these hacks will make your next international trip a breeze.
